I’ve had great fun working on chicken! Newspaper for children these last two years. Not only is it gaining ground and making a difference to these who read it, but it is also carving out a space in realm of media for children.
With each issue the vision we had of a newspaper for primary school children is becoming clearer.
So what’s it all about, I hear you ask? Here is a short introduction to my world:
Children, community and sponsors
chicken! newspaper is published four times a year. Each issue has a theme and a featured letter. For the next issue (January 2016), the theme is PEACE and the letter is R.
You can Read chicken! issue 5, or better still we can send a copy of the printed Tabloid sized version in the post.
The newspaper is distributed to children mainly through schools, but also libraries, doctors’ surgeries, after-school clubs and day centres and anywhere where there are children.
The business part of chicken! Newspaper is based on partnership, as opposed to advertising and subscription. Partners is pre-buying copies of chicken! which we deliver to schools for free. It costs £90.00 (135 USD) to sponsor one class of 30 children).
Partners don’t always have to pay… They can write or suggest content, or introduce us to other potential partners and subscribers. All partners benefit by having their names featured on a dedicated page in the next issue and the chicken! newspaper website They also have a chance to connect with sponsored schools. We offer up to 50 free copies to schools for evaluation.
